The top two are by David Lobenberg ..what he has done so far..,whom I am "facing" in this paint off ..He is indeed a bold colorist and good with faces.
and below some 3 attemptss I am still trying .Usually i do more than 1 attempts and realize probably first was the best.This time I am not sure probably first is not as good as third which is better than the second which is not as good as first ..got it?
When it come to painting Face..face it, there is always a tie between a painterly rendition and getting likeness.
Masters are those who achive both.. like Charles Reid who make our life unhappy
You might wonder all three men look different..Ya ,most of the time people whom i portray refuse to look like their portraits...not my fault..
